METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 13, 2011 GAME:Ken Akerman
August 18, 2011
I attended this game at Chase Field. The key moment occurred in the bottom of the fifth inning. With the Mets up 4-2, starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey was hit in the right elbow by a line drive off the bat of Gerardo Parra, forcing him to leave the game and putting Parra on first with an infield single.
D.J. Carrasco came in to relieve Pelfry. Three batters later, after a hit by pitch to Willie Bloomquist, Ryan Roberts hit a three-run home run to put the Diamondbacks ahead for good, 5- 4.
Diamonbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson pitched eight strong innings for the win, and helped his own cause by driving in an insurance run in the sixth inning with an RBI single. J.J. Putz earned his 29th save of the season with perfect ninth inning.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
